    Default Do you store your Cam/Lens inside Camera Bag

    How many of you think that it is not necessary to buy electronic dry cabinet and just store it inside the camera bag or somewhere else?

    what kind of camera?
    if it's a $200 p&s, camera bag is enuf.
    if it's a $2000 DSLR, i guess all the guys here say BBB dry cabi.

    Why such a question, JL1500k? IMO, this is a no-brainer question.

    air tight box filled with silica gel will suffice. Got a >6 year old point&shoot and prosumer kept this way and no trace of fungus. Can't afford air con in my house also.. but i can afford $3 blue beads

    Those who dont need dri cabinet or dri box in Singapore's humid weather should use disposable cameras. Unless his/her house is fully airconditioned and switched on all the time. My House if Fully A-con but seldom switch on.

    Those professional camera bag like Lowepro can use as storing camera? Maybe for short team 3-6 months when you are bringing alone while u r working in oversea .

    JL1500k, camera bags, be it Lowepro, Billingham, Tenba, etc. are just bags. They are not air-tight. For a proper storage of camera and its equipments, the container must:
    1. Be air tight.
    2. Contain a dehumidifier - to dry the air inside it.

    You need the 'air-tightness' so that air inside it would not mix with the humid air outside. Hence, a bag does not meet the criteria as a storage equipment.

    You mentioned that you are going overseas. Where are you going? Unless the country where you are going is dry, then you are fine.
